Convert text to integer in PAD

How to convert a variable from text (got from "Display input dialog" action) to integer so that some mathematical calculations can be carried out on it like addition and subtraction?


Hi @Rkmatieda 


The Action "Convert text to number" would be helpful in that case.


I hope that helps!

Hi @PetrosF-MSFT ,

Thanks for the reply.


For others who will read about this issue in future, i have found out a document from help which states that as of now there are only 17 datatypes supported in the PAD. 

Variable data types - Power Automate | Microsoft Docs


This was a surprize for me because being a desktop application I was thinking all the .Net Framework datatypes would be available. So is there any future plans of making more/all .net datatypes and their in-built functions be available in PAD?
